Road trip day. Started with breakfast at Cora’s before hitting the road for the Lacombe Corn Maze. Very cool place with a lot more than corn mazes. They had these huge bouncy things (we didn’t go on them), plenty of kiddie games, food cannons (they threw corn, potatoes, and melons at a school bus), three corn mazes, goats, a donkey, chickens, roosters, a piano ( I know, very random), and giant games of chess, snakes and ladders, checkers, and jenga. After doing the longest, hardest corn maze, Jarod and I played a game of chess (which he won because of one stupid move on my part).
We went from the corn maze to the Starlight Diner Car in Bowden for a very late lunch (excellent milkshakes and alien theme…very cool…might want to make this a regular stop on holidays). After dropping off the F150 at the brother-in-law’s we went to Vulcan for the night. Yes, Vulcan. We totally got our geek on. But we got there later than we intended, so only went for a short walk that evening. We stayed at the Wheatland Motel; don’t let the sign fool you – the place is very well kept, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the neighbours are respectful.
